A black and white photography exhibit, Abandoned, will be on display starting April 9 at the Fred Esvelt Gallery on the Columbia Basin College campus in Pasco.
The exhibition showcases a set of images of discarded and neglected buildings that still survive in a throwaway society.
The photos define a transformation of the buildings into objects of grace and beauty, according to photographer Tom Hassler of Portland.
The exhibition will also feature the improvisational quilt work of Trisha Hassler who has stitched, cut and reassembled clothing, baby quilts, costumes, pillows and a sofa into interesting pieces of art.
Never miss a local story.
The gallery is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Admission is free. A reception for the artists is planned at the end of the exhibition starting at 7 p.m. May 2 at the gallery.
